The Heritage Collection bean pot recalls an original Le Creuset design from the 1930s. First constructed of cast iron for use in fireplaces, today's bean pot is made from durable stoneware for use in kitchen ovens.
Baked beans, soups and stews have a rustic and authentic flavor thanks to its unique shape. The deep, round body circulates heat slowly and evenly, while a slightly narrower neck minimizes moisture evaporation and heat loss. The bean pot can be taken directly from the oven to the table, where it becomes a beautiful serving piece.
